  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 6 spring onions, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp finely grated fresh root ginger
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 aubergine, diced
  • 275g dried basmati rice

  1. Spray a heavy-based pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the onions, garlic, ginger, cumin seeds, chilli and aubergine and fry for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add the rice and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the stock and bring to the boil.
  3. Cover tightly, reduce the heat to low and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.
